Warriors, Cavaliers open as favorites to win 2018 NBA Finals by Las Vegas oddsmakers
The NBA Finals aren't even over and the Warriors and Cavs are already favorites to win in 2018
The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are still battling for the 2017 NBA championship, but oddsmakers have already set the two teams as favorites to take home the 2018 title as well.
That shouldn't come as much of a surprise given the talent on both of these two rosters, and the strangleholds they have on their respective conferences. While there is still the draft and free agency to come, barring any shocking moves, betting on anyone besides the Warriors or Cavs would seem like a waste of money.
However, if you are so inclined to throw a few bucks down on your favorite squad, or are just interested in seeing how the odds look a year out from the 2018 Finals, here are the odds for all 30 teams. Via Bovada:
2018 NBA Championship - Odds to Win
- Golden State Warriors 2/3
- Cleveland Cavaliers 3/1
- Boston Celtics 12/1
- San Antonio Spurs 12/1
- Houston Rockets 20/1
- Los Angeles Clippers 33/1
- Toronto Raptors 50/1
- Washington Wizards 50/1
- Oklahoma City Thunder 66/1

If you think the Spurs are serious about making a run at Chris Paul, they could be an interesting play at 12-1. Still, even that seems like a long shot.
